LUCERNA -- Solo Exhibition

February 2 – February 25, 2018
Left Field Gallery

San Luis Obispo, CA

The show’s title, Lucerna, is the Czech word for “Lantern” and it also refers to a branded line of table linens that the CB&S factory produced between 1910 and 1935. Engaging with the small handful of objects that survive from a business that was operated for over fifty years by multiple generations of family members, Noah confronts his limited access to his family’s history. The work of research can be likened to holding a lantern over a forgotten relic in a dark attic: a light with short range shows some details clearly, but it fades at the edges and can only allude to a complete form.
